The CDC announced the launch of a new webpage housing materials for medical professionals as part of the agency’s Hear Her campaign to reduce pregnancy-related deaths, according to a press release.

According to the statement, more than 700 women die each year due to pregnancy-related complications. Healthcare professionals play a “critical role” in reducing these deaths, two in three of which are considered preventable.

Healthcare professionals – including obstetrics, pediatrics and emergency personnel – will have access to posters, palm maps, sample social media content and graphics in English and Spanish to share with their patients.

The new webpage will also feature clinical resources and educational tools from organizations such as ACOG and the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses to support professionals in their care of prenatal and postpartum patients.
